From DAVIDsTEA

Life’s a beach

Don’t you wish you were on a tropical island right about now? Us too. But thankfully we’ve got the next best thing. With the fruity flavour of papaya and pineapple and a hint of creamy white chocolate, this exotic pu’erh is straight out of a Hawaiian beach vacation. And since it already tastes like a tropical cocktail, you can take it to the next level over ice with a splash of rum – just don’t forget the little paper umbrella. Say aloha to our little friend. (MK Kosher Dairy)

Ingredients: Pu’erh tea, white chocolate, candied pineapple, candied papaya, natural and artificial flavouring.

Allergens: Soy, dairy and sulfites

Smells awful (fishy), but doesn’t taste too bad, actually. I will say I had it with milk and sugar as I do with pretty much all blacks and dark oolongs, so this pu erh was no exception. Maybe that is what made it good.

It might just be that this brew was more fruit and less tea…when you have big chunks of fruit in the mix like this, the ratio to tea leaves decreases. Still, I can taste the tropical fruit in this mix. I can’t really taste the chocolate, but I think it helps smooth out the blend.

I can’t say if this is a tea I will refill or not…I only got 10g or so of it, so I might get more to test it more since I think with this bag, I may only have one or two more steeps out of it, though I did get two decent steeps with this first round. I bet this is gonna be good as an iced tea, once it gets warmer.

How does this compare to something like Life Long Oolong of Happy Kombucha? Ihaven’t had either in a while, so it might be worth getting some again to try, but I think they’ll all be pretty similar.

I say that you should ignore the smell, and if it is fishy, give it a quick rinse first. I do feel like this is a nice tropical taste, but the heaviness that gets me through the winter. I do tend to like pu erh teas and I do like this one.

Ever have a tea that makes you gag? yea well I’ve found that tea.

this may be the worst tea I’ve ever had, EVER!!!

when I smelt the dry leaves I didn’t think I would like it, but that was the papaya smell. as it steeped it smelt much better. at the very beginning of the sip I get some creaminess from the chocolate, then I get the fruit, & that fishy earthy taste Pu’erh is known for. & then I gag, even before the mouth full is down my throat.

I’m going to attempt it with less leaves at another time, similarly I had to do that with the chocolate orange one, but that was more tolerable than this.

YUCK!!!

That’s rough! Maybe I’ll stay away as I am not a fan of the fishy pu’erh taste – I want a blend that hides that away like The Skinny.

So this smelled like a tiny tropical paradise in the store so I promptly bought 25 grams and scurried home as fast as my legs could take me and prepared it.

It smells in the pouch very similar to many of the other pineapple teas they carry except for one thing ..this little smile at the end of each sniff of white chocolate sweetness..WHITE CHOCOLATE..and tropical paradise..I should be scared of such a bold combo but instead I am dancing inside.
and it doesn’t even smell like Pu-erh but something else…once brewed it smells richer and almost honey-like with a tiny lick of muskiness.

As my tea cools I have news! I GOT A JOB! Doing what I love helping people..I have never been this happy ..feels so damn good to be comfortable in my own skin..to feel i am a worthwhile person..that I belong and can make an impact in this world.I can’t wait to start.

Also new Tegan and Sara is dynamite! Buy now!

Aside:over.

First taste: nice..like watered down hot chocolate..in a very nice way.Sweet and dusky..the pu’erh just a sweet suggestion and the white chocolate is gently dancing with girls wearing grass skirts.Doesn’t blow my mind but it’s nice and light and warm.

Reminds me of:A shadow of hot chocolate,a light kiss of a tropical breeze.

perfect for : commitment-phobes,Pu’erh lovers(obviously),just one try.

Final verdict: Alright.Really didn’t like the sediment at the bottom.Pretty forgettable and I’ll be trading my 25 grams I think..there’s other drinks similar that are much better.

Terrible experience and money spent for nothing. I don’t enjoy this tea at all. And I mean it. At all. Not sure what I will do with the rest of my 50 g. supply…
The color is good. It smelled the most fruity from all their pu’erh teas so I decided to take chances. Didn’t worth it. It is basically tasteless and on top has this disgusting film from white chocolate that is part of the blend. I will never buy another blend with chocolate in it!

David’s has some pretty great teas with chocolate…this tea in particular is just spectacularly awful.

Could you pls recommend one? I see you are fan of David’s… :-) I truly was trying to avoid chocolate teas lately, although they smell sooo attractive!

thlowe

Well, Read my Lips is alright hot, but as a cold-steeped iced tea it is fantastic. And for hot tea, Stormy Night, Ceylon Star, and Chocolate Rocket are all pretty great. Red Velvet Cake is alright but it’s definitely not an “everyday” tea.

Oh, and as far as fruity Pu’erhs, if that’s what you were looking for with this, I would highly recommend Berry Good.

kalina9918

Thank you! :) Will definitely go to try some as soon as i get to the store! :)

This tea was only okay for me. By the smell of this, and the other one that came out the same day, I felt I was going to love this one and only like ‘berry good’ it turned out opposite and now I have a tin of this… maybe i’ll like it better iced..

I have never been a fan of Pu’reh teas and this blend did not make me a convert. I was feeling adventurous and picked up a small sample size not realizing that it had actual dairy in it – my fault for not reading more carefully. Given that I am lactose intolerant I should have cut my losses there … but alas no, I decided to have a moment of poor judgement and went for it. In looking at the blend there didn’t appear to be THAT many pieces of chocolate BUT I was so very, very wrong. The result, a very odd tasting blend followed closely by hours of nausea. Even without getting sick (due to my own stupidity) this was not one of the better blends from DavidsTEA – Pu’erh or otherwise. The dry tea scent leaves much to be desired and the brew is a combination of a sickly sweet and an odd creamy flavor with a rather unpleasant aftertaste. I thought that this could just be my natural aversion to dairy but even my cat turned away from this one. Sorry, this is not a keeper in my books.

When I first heard about the ingredients I was taken back to a tea I had a few years back. It had similar ingredients but was a green tea and had added sugar hearts. It was tasty too. So suffice to say my curiosity was perked to see how this one would taste. The smoky quality and the deeper richness of the truly fragrant dry mix almost sold me completely.

When I tried it last night I found that it was a more pleasant experience than its predecessor. Very round and fresh to the palate. Not too much and not too little. A soothing gem if brewed in one of the DT specialized tea bags. I could see trying it flash-chilled and iced during the summer. Stay warm everyone!

This does not taste like a pu’erh, and for me that’s not a bad thing. I like the bg fruit pieces and the softness of the white chocolate. This would probably make a great base for a tropical smoothie. I may or may not reorder this, but I’m certainly not disappointed.

…Never again! I only got a 10g bag (thank god!) as it smelled really fruity and tropical in the store. This was my first Pu’erh and I am not in any rush to try any more. It was really fishy and like some of the other comments, I also noticed an oily coating on top which was kinda disgusting. I litteraly took one sip and did everything in my power not to spit it out…ewwwww.

Dry leaves smelled like fish, brewed tea also tasted fishy. Oily film when brewed.

I was really disappointed in this tea. I love pu’erh, and was excited for this new flavour that I got as part of David’s new pu’erh collection. I am glad I didn’t have more than the sample size or I would have returned it.
